The Montana Department of Employment, Division of Labor Standards claimed a small rancher was not paying proper wages to his help and sent an agent out to investigate him. 

GOV’T AGENT:  “I need a list of your employees and how much you pay them.” 

RANCHER:  ”Well, there’s my hired hand who’s been with me for 3 years.  I pay him $200 a week plus free room and board. 

Then there’s the mentally challenged guy.  He works about 18 hours every day and does about 90% of all the work around here.  He makes about $10 per week, pays his own room and board, and I buy him a bottle of bourbon every Saturday night so he can cope with life.  He also sleeps with my wife occasionally.” 

GOV’T AGENT: “That’s the guy I want to talk to – the mentally challenged one.” 

RANCHER: “That would be me.”
